Bad news for everyone who loves their grandparents - M. Night Shyamalan seems determined to make you afraid of them.

His new movie The Visit - the worldwide distribution rights for which were recently picked up by Universal - has just been announced, after a secretive production period, and it sounds as though it might just mess with our heads...

According to Deadline:

"The Visit focuses on a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip. Once the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in something deeply disturbing, they see their chances of getting back home are growing smaller every day."

Which makes it seem an awful lot like M. Night Shyamalan is planning on doing for grandparents what he's already done for Haley Joel Osment, aliens and mysterious villages: making them terrifying.

Now, while the movie is apparently a return to Shyamalan's indie roots - which could be a very good thing - I'm also partial to not being terrified of my grandparents.

So...slightly mixed feelings about this one, then.

What do you guys think, though?
